Emerging unscathed from GOP lawyer Joel Arends's overhyped interview with Minnehaha County GOP committeeman Gary Dykstra, State Representative Stace Nelson (R-19/Fulton) is on the campaign trail this weekend. He makes the long trek to Rapid City Saturday to speak at an afternoon "Constitution Rally" in Memorial Park. South Dakota Citizens for Liberty—you know, the local Tea Party—is helping one Jack Heyd organize the event.
I can't find word on whether Bill Napoli will show up to join Rep. Nelson for the first public debate of the 2014 GOP Senate primary. Such a debate would likely be more fun and instructive than the rest of the program. Check out Rep. Elizabeth Marty May's (R-27/Kyle) posting of this program of speakers:
There is a Constitutional Rally at Memorial Park this Saturday, May 4th at the bandshell. Speakers will be Rep. Stacey Nelson, Rep. Lance Russell, Rep. Chip Campbell, Constitutional Instructor Stephanie Strong, and Constitutional Speaker Scott Bartlett from Sioux Falls. Please take the time to come and support the rally and these amazing speakers. Being uniformed these days is a scary thing! I would appreciate you all sharing this with your friends so we have a successful turnout! We look forward to seeing you all there! Together we can make a difference! [Rep. Elizabeth Marty May, Facebook post, 2013.04.30]
Constitutional "Instructor" Stephanie Strong? The same gal who doesn't know the difference between a courtroom and a political soapbox? Uff da. I hope "Constitutional Instructor" is a paying gig... though I pity the fools who would pay her.
